Snug Hollow Farm, a Kentucky Treasure

Last weekend Tim and I slipped away for a quiet weekend at Snug Hollow Farm located just west of Irvine,Kentucky. It's three hundred acres, and serves organic vegetarian dishes. They were delicious. On the way home we decided our three favorite things to eat were the lasagna, chocolate torte, and oatmeal pancakes.



We stayed in the main house of this rustic Bed & Breakfast. Others stayed in cabins, one which was built in the late 1700s. You can see the older cabin in front of the main house in this picture.


Supper and breakfast were served in the main house where we had the pleasure of meeting new people. One of Tim's board members and his wife happened to be staying on Friday night, and I got to know them better.

We also met a couple from Bardstown. John and Mary Tim. It turns out John and I went to the same church in Owensboro when we were little. He's four years older than me, and we moved when I was eight so he and I didn't know each other. My parents remember his family.

There was also a young couple who bought a 150 acre farm in Eastern Kentucky earlier this year. They plan to work the land. Jessica cans food they grow, they have an apple orchard, and her eyes lit up as she shared her plans to use chips from some of the old apple trees for a smoke house. They truly inspired us with their love for each other and their desire to make the world a better place.

We thought we were going away to hike and rest. God delighted us by introducing us to some amazing strangers we'll never forget.
